Have you always wanted to explore the stunningly beautiful waterfalls in the Gold Coast hinterland and capture some amazing photos to take home with you? With all this recent rain fall the waterfalls are pumping again! It’s the perfect time to explore.

Have you always wanted to learn how to capture those misty photos with smooth water that look out of this world?

Join myself and fellow photographer Stephen Waller for an all day adventure exploring the most beautiful waterfalls in the Gold Coast Hinterland and let us show you how to create these stunning images for yourself.

There is something magical about being deep in the middle of a rainforest, focusing your camera on a waterfall, triggering the shutter then after a few seconds looking at the exposed image which has captured the waterfall in a dream-like state. We will teach you everything that we know about capturing waterfall and rainforest photos that take your breath away.

With this being only a small group (maximum of 8) the two of us are able to give you the personalised attention that other teachers can’t give. We will depart from Brisbane DFO early and head to Springbrook National Park and surrounds where will explore 4 of the prettiest waterfalls.

We have both been photographers for 18 years collectively and know how to create the best compositions for the most eye catching images.

Our combined technical knowledge and creativity will have you walking away with a collection of stunning images to show your friends and family plus some wonderful memories.

             What you will learn…

  • How you use your camera off Auto Mode
  • Aperture
  • Shutter speed
  • The best ISO to always use
  • Understanding exposure and composition
  • The best times to shoot
  • How to capture smooth silky water
  • The secret tool for capturing waterfalls

 What you need to bring…

  • Shutter Release cable or Wireless Remote or a 2 second timer on your camera
  • Wide Angle Lens is recommended but not necessary
  • Any other lenses you may have
